Xiang Palace In SOHO IPOH

On that particular day, both of us did not any plans on what and where to take our lunch... we have ran out of ideas and choices and we just drove around town to get some "food inspiration" ... hahaha...  And good thing we manage to get to this place...

SOHO Ipoh (Small Office, Home Office) is the new place in town, located at the intersection Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (Brewster Road), corner of The Sultan Yussuf Fountain roundabout which also walking distance to Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall where one of the over-rated shops is located. 

This SOHO is an enclosed area, as the shops are not fully occupied yet, the parking in this area is free for now.   But we did not go into that over-rated shop, we rather eat somewhere else.  My girl has sharp eyes, she saw one shop called Xiang Palace, just newly opened while I was looking for parking around the vicinity.
My girl was fascinated with something here...
They have see through glass where we can see the "food-in-making"...
We ordered a big bowl of noodles with dumplings...
There were six big ones inside.....
These are not wanton noodles... looks like Hakka noodles to me....
Well, it is certainly enough for her!
Taste?  She finished it all...  :)
As for me, I wanted to try some Black Sesame dumpling........ 
And the next thing I know, I was served only ONE dumpling!
When I told the waiter why just one... he answered that I wrote "1" on the order chit....
Oh, I thought when I wrote "1"...  it would come in one small basket??? 
I thought I would be served like this... 3 in the basket, not 1.... 
hahahaaa..
Anyway, my girl and I had a good laugh over it...
Cos they gave us another basket with 3 inside... so altogether we had 4 of these.....
And the best thing is.... they gave another 10% discount on the total bill...
Our bill only came to RM13 something with drinks...
Not too bad.. worth trying again...

  2. So funny to serve you 1 bao in the whole empty basket. Normally 1 means 1 basket, you are right. So how did they charge you for the baos, not per basket but per number of baos? The 10% discount is given to all customers or just to you both?

  5. Oh? So that's the meaning behind the name. I thought it was following the name of the red-light district in London. :D Those buns look like the lau sar pao I had yesterday morning...minus the black dot. Love the look of the dumplings - gorgeous.

  13. Funny. Usually paus come in 3 instead of 1. Haha.

  14. This is also a popular trend here in KL now to show the kitchen scene. Makes the diners more excited and wait longer knowing that the chefs are working hard. This open concept makes the ambiance more spacious too. Nice place!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
